In order to be eligible for admission to the College, applicants must have graduated, or will graduate prior to enrollment, from an approved secondary school (high school) or possess a state-issued high-school equivalency diploma (GED/HiSET). Acceptances are issued on a space available basis.

You are eligible for in-state tuition if:

  • You or your parent/guardian (in the case of an unemancipated minor) has established a residence in Massachusetts for not less than six continuous months preceding the beginning date of the academic period for which he/she seeks to enroll, and has an intent to remain in Massachusetts as demonstrated by the possession of a Massachusetts motor vehicle registration, operator's license, voter registration, income tax returns, employment, and/or other criteria which evidences the person's intent to remain in Massachusetts. No one factor shall be solely determinative of the issue of residency.

Or

Or

  • You (or your spouse and unemancipated children) is a member of the armed forces and on active duty in Massachusetts.

Any person who is approved by the College for in-state tuition and so registers shall be eligible for continued classification as a Massachusetts resident for tuition purposes during continuous attendance until the attainment of the degree. Any misrepresentation, omission or incorrect information contained on a student/applicant affidavit for in-state tuition which if stated accurately would be the basis for denial of in-state tuition shall be cause for dismissal or other disciplinary action with no right to a tuition refund.

All other persons shall not be eligible for in-state tuition and shall pay the out-of-state tuition as it may be established from time to time.
